Benefits

Teachers and administrators have increased job satisfaction in charter schools because they are a part of the decision-making process. Join the team and help create something special and lasting for the community.

  • Salaries close to those in local districts
  • Participation in Ohio State Teacher Retirement System (STRS)
  • Full-time employees are entitled to insurance benefits offered by iLEAD Spring Meadows. These insurance benefits include medical, dental, and vision. iLEAD Spring Meadows has a defined contribution toward the employee’s insurance premiums that are school-sponsored insurance plans. This amount will be determined on an annual basis.
  • Full-time employees are also covered under an insurance policy that includes life, short-term disability, and long-term disability at no cost to the full-time employee. Additional voluntary insurance plans are offered through the school for which premiums will be the employee’s responsibility.

In order to be offered a full-time teaching position at iLEAD Spring Meadows, teachers will need to go through one of our hiring events held in the months of January through July. This is a full-day, interactive job interview that involves multiple iLEAD Spring Meadows stakeholders. After an initial paper screening process, we will invite approximately nine candidates to come to a Star Search event (held between January and July). These candidates will be teachers from a range of different content areas and possibly for other nearby partner schools. The day will begin with mingling with staff. Next, the candidates will gather in a room for an orientation to the iLEAD Schools philosophy and culture. In addition to teaching a mini lesson, the candidates will spend time observing in the classrooms on a school tour. During the rotations, the candidates will interview with groups of parents and students informally in the Village. Toward the end of the day, candidates will gather in a classroom to design projects with groups from the Star Search and current staff. Because we value collaboration and adult learning, we want to see how well candidates can work with other adults. To culminate the day-long interview process, teams will present their projects to the iLEAD Spring Meadows family. Decisions are generally made by July 1.
